        I have been working at MicroVention full-time

        Pros

        There are a few nice people. The building is new. There is an abundance of parking in the parking structure. Free snacks are delivered twice daily.

        Cons

        -Management at all levels are incompetent. Senior/executive level RA management lack regulatory knowledge and experience. They also lack management skills and therefore, the RA group is not respected among other departments. RA management does not support their employees and will throw them under the bus to protect themselves. Most RA managers have no experience managing employees. Obvious favoritism to certain employees...

        Advice to Management

        Executive and senior level management needs to be replaced. Add experienced executives and senior level managers. Ethics matter.

        Pros

        You can be on a good team with cool coworkers if you’re lucky.

        Cons

        Organization changes quickly. This place is full of engineers-in-training. Workload can be extremely overwhelming in operations. If you’re not a favorite by your manager, good luck getting promoted. The pay is below industry, and when it comes to raise, it’s a lot less than what other companies are giving. My advice for engineers who’s looking for a job here: you’re probably young and just out of college, take the job,...

        There are no pros in working here!

        Cons

        Terrible company! The management only cares about promoting theirselves or those who already have a high position. Specially in accounting! They hire non accounting graduates who don’t know what they’re doing and yet favor them! Management is scared when they have employees who actually knows what they are doing. They find ways to terminate good employees who perform well. Management only looks out for theirselves and...

        Good pay and friendly coworkers.

        Cons

        Negative working environment. Bad energy from lead to sub lead down to employee. Very little compliments for good doer, more complaints. my Lead somehow cannot control her personal emotion and always expose out on employees at work

        Advice to Management

        Manager should listen more to employees not just lead. Manager should not let lead do ever she wants like verbally abusive to ward employees
